Leaking washing machine!

Post by hannahdeen » Wed May 02, 2018 5:10 pm

My washing machine pipe is heavily leaky (see image attached).

It is leaking from the white pipe so i guess if i want to replace the washer I need to do so here - does anyone have any advice? i was planning to do this myself if possible

Thanks in advance for all the help!

First check it hasn't just come loose.
Then maybe check there is no dirt or scale clogged up in the little mesh inside that white valve.

If no good I would just replace the hose, they are very cheap, about 3 or 4 quid on screwfix

PS: when you do take it off there will be residual water in the pipe so bowel or towel at the ready

You'll need to isolate the water before replacing and have a towel handy because there will be some residual water in the pipe.
